Electric Mobility Forum

Is the movement towards EVs transformational?

At the core of the human history of “progress” is change enabled by transformational technology. Do EVs of all kinds herald a transformational change, and if they do, what will this change look like and what opportunities and dangers does it present? This networking meeting will be a forum on Electric Mobility with guests Brett Bond, Steve Nelson, and Phil Spiers who will spark conversation, provide perspectives, and tell of their experiences.

Steve Nelson is an investor in disruptive companies and technologies. Steve also worked in the IT industry when it went through its own period of significant disruption and experienced firsthand some of its characteristics and effects. As major disruptions always unfold in a similar pattern Steve will cover the key elements so that we might draw some insight as to how the EV industry will continue to evolve. This will allow us to judge the likely speed of adoption, and some social and economic impacts. It gives an insight into future affordability and capability of EV’s and how that might also impact costs of other products and services we consume.

Phil Spiers is an economist leading a project within a large international company to move to an EV fleet globally. Phil will speak to the practical challenges involved in the rollout.

Brett Bond is with Fire Rescue NSW and is stationed at Katoomba. He is an advocate for home and transport electrification. He has a 6.6kw home solar with heat pump for hot water, induction cooking, and reverse cycle a/c. His electricity costs are neutral. He also has an electric motorcycle that he home charges and will purchase an electric van when the ‘right one’ comes along. He has embraced electrification for independence, convenience and for the environment and will provide a brief history of the EV and talk about the practicalities of going EV.

The meeting starts at 7:00pm and meals are available from 6:00pm.
